Nickelodeon Magazine - Faster or Slower?
In the 2001 June/July issue of "Nickelodeon Magazine", turn to page 54. Number four of "Faster than a Speeding", the question is, "Which is faster, a carrousel or a walking horse?" Look at the picture of a horse. It is obviously trotting. It's not a good example of a WALKING horse, now is it? So tell me, which is faster, a carrousel, or a trotting horse? (The answer is a trotting horse, but for a walking horse a carrousel would be faster.) (Carrousel is also mispelled)

If carrousel was spelled carousel it is still correct. Carrousel has two spellings in the American English language.

The answer is simple. I'm quite sure this is not a slipup, it's merely the reader's mistake. When the magazine says "walking horse" it does not mean a horse that is walking. A walking horse is a horse with a special gait (a gait is a certain type of walk that some horses have), such as a Tennessee Walker or a Fox Trotter. I own a Fox Trotter so I can tell you, she can certainly outwalk a carousel. Thank you, Caley.

Maybe a racehorse's trot is faster, but not a regular ranch horse!
